        This is the story of Aimee Mullins, the record-setting athlete,
actress and model.  Aimee, who is missing both legs from the shin down,
set world records in several track events at the Paralympics in 1996.
         
        In this powerful and poignant 22 minute video, Aimee speaks from
her heart about society's use of the term "disabled" and the power of
labels.  Aimee says 
        "It's society that disables an individual by not investing in
enough creativity to allow for someone to show us the quality that makes
them rare and valuable and capable."
         
        Aimee talks about the opportunity of adversity.
